Something wicked this way comes; Folklore Tapes continue their journey into the darkest alcoves of Britain’s folkloric roots and bring us this compilation which journeys back to the origins of Halloween and finds the Celtic festival Samhain. This release is just as unsettling as it is fascinating with supernatural themes seeping through the speakers on rectified cuts like 'Lullaby for Nosferatu' and 'Aos Si'. The holier sounds of Rob St John’s Old Growth don’t come without a hint of the paranormal celebrations that this release focuses on. A searching compilation featuring Folklore Tapes mainstays such as Magpahi (Bird records), Ian Humberstone (Tisso Lake), Carl Turney & Brian Campbell (of the group Clinic) a few new names who could be shadowy producers connected to the Folkloric Pre-Cert world. With new members of the family in the form of Eva Bowan and Mary Stark. Also of huge interest to many is the appearance of a track from Children Of Alice, the group made up of James Cargill & Roj Stevens (previously of Broadcast) and Ghost Box affiliated artist Julian House. Coming complete with a pumpkin seed, the Time Team of the independent music world have successfully built a one-of-a-kind soundtrack for All Hallows Eve.
